Since first appearing in its pages in 2009, British model Cara Delevingne has been a main fixture in Katie Grand's Love magazine. Aside from covering the glossy four times, she's starred in Love's annual Advent Calendar for years and has been one of the prominently featured models in the magazine's exclusive digital projects — including lip-synching to L.L. Cool J for a video that went viral (called "Caraoke") and a flirty black and white Valentine's Day clip entitled "In Bed with Cara."
Now, the ubiquitous 22-year-old has received an even higher honor from the magazine, and according to a release from Love, she's been officially given the title of contributing editor. She guest edits the upcoming Spring/Summer 2015 issue, which hits newsstands Feb. 9. Delevingne isn't the first model to get a coveted slot on Love's masthead, and she follows in the footsteps of Edie Campbell, who received the same honor last year.
"I’ve always known that [Delevingne]’s an exceptionally bright, sharp and hilarious young woman. That’s why I was so keen to let her have this chance to exercise her skills as a journalist and writer," Grand said in a statement. "And she has proven herself to be a fearless interviewer, never afraid to ask all the questions we want to know the answers to."
As if Delevingne's guest edit isn't a big enough selling point about the issue — which also teased a cover last month that features the model being straddled by Kendall Jenner — a new cover for the Spring/Summer 2015 issue was unveiled this weekend, featuring none other than Balmain face Kim Kardashian wearing custom Prada and with bleached eyebrows (see above). Kardashian shared news of her cover on her Instagram over the weekend, writing: “We shot for 3 days straight at a motel in LA. One night til 4am. @kegrand dressed me in all vintage and custom @Prada and bleached my brows! Can't wait for u to see 30+ page spread with Steven Klein.” Don't say we didn't warn you that this family wasn't going anywhere in 2015.
